Re: Sumit Nagal thread

^^^ His singles second round is also scheduled for tomorrow. Doubles after that. Yes, dont mind him tanking doubles at all, especially since it is against Balaji who can do with some extra confidence before Olympics.

He has 250 points to defend in couple of weeks time for his first ATP title at Mallorca, Spain . He will need to win a title at one of these 2 weeks of ATP 250's - this and M...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Sumit has now passed Prajnesh and has tied Leander for the highest singles ranking by an Indian! Next up is Somdev at number 62. Let’s go Sumit! Only in the live rankings. If he stays at that level in official ranking next Monday, we can say he has passed them or tied. This is just start of this we...

16 yr old Rethin Senthilkumar (IND,107) won J100 title in Sobota, Poland beating 6th seed Kolos Kincses (HUN,175) 60 30.

With that title win Rethin add 40 points to his tally and moves up inside top 100 and is now #99 and is now India #1.

Re: FIH's Hockey Pro League - (Men's and Women's)

Yes, we will have to beat Argentina, New Zealand and Ireland in group stage ( assuming we lose to Australia and Belgium) to finish third and than beat Germany/GBR in QF and than one of Australia/Netherlands/Belgium in bronze match. That is going to be our road to medal at Paris. Quite tough but not ...

Final entry will be published latest by 8th July only but ITF says it is likely to be published in the week of 1st July. Washington ATP entry list will also come out b...

Re: FIH's Hockey Pro League - (Men's and Women's)

Our men lost 2-3 against Germany yesterday. Watched the match, some brilliant play but also some defensive lapses. Jarmanpreet missed a sitter in last minute, else could have ended in a draw.

Will be up against GBR today.

Re: Indian Wrestling Thread ...

Yes, looks fair. As per comments in totalolympic forum, the draw will be exactly as per the seedings this time. There will be 8 seeds in the draw of 16 and they will meet unseeded players in round of 16 and than there will be 1 vs 8, 4 vs 6, 3 vs 6 and 2 vs 7 contests in QF. Aman will be seeded 5th ...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Cilic has not played anywhere since February, so I do not think he will take PR. Nishikori played at French open with his PR, so he is likely to use PR at olympics as well. So is Kwon. So, considering these PR's, I think Sumit will be 1 out if he wins the title today and 6 out if he loses today. I t...

Re: Indian Wrestling Thread ...

Reetika Hooda wins 3/4 matches in round robin format to win silver. All three wrestlers she beat will be competing at the 2024 Olympics and she only lost narrowly 2-3 against Atiana Rentería (COL) who won bronze at the 2023 Worlds to miss out on gold. I guess now we can say Antim, Anshu and Reetika ...

Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

Manish lost 26 16 in the SF against Cengiz Aksu (TUR,1124) who seems in great form this week.

Still, a good week for Manish after quite some time.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Yes, excellent win by Sumit here. When is focussed and determined as he was today and has been this week after the first match, he is very difficult to beat. He wants to nail that Olympic spot here. A win the final will vault over everyone else and I think 1 out from main draw if everyone signs ups ...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Yes, but this guy Van Assche looks really good going by his results this year, reached Australian Open third round and has only lost to top 75 level players. So, this match looks quite tough.
